The debut feature from director Hannah Fidell, A Teacher explores the gradual emotional unraveling of Diana (Lindsay Burdge), a young, attractive high school teacher. She has been sleeping with her student, Eric (Will Brittain), but begins to oscillate between extreme anxiety and insatiable lust for her younger sexual partner. A Teacher is a remarkably assured debut, and demonstrates two immense new talents, one in front of and one behind the camera. Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
